Does your cd player have a removeable face plate if so take it off and if not well then you will use the same tool as well , get a pair of tweezers and flatten them out as much as possible but use a small hammer then get a screwdriverand pry it open just slightly place some masking tape on the inside where the tweezers will clamp down not to scatch the cd place an object in the opening of your cd player to keep the flap openwith a small flash light look for the cd and turn the cd player on and have someone press the eject button while you pull on the cd and walla it will eject it with your help . good luck

My 2000 SL500 6 CD cartridge will not eject The player works fine but I want to put in 6 new CDs and cannot get the cartridge ejected


There probably is a CD hung up between the magazine and the player mechanism. There is no easy fix. You will have to remove and disassemble the unit to get access inside. Once everything is back in place, apply power and try to eject the magazine. Otherwise, you may get the unit reinstalled only to find the magazine is still stuck.

Magazine-type players can fail with a CD in transit which leaves you with a magazine that can't be removed. You may have to remove the complete unit from the dash and disassemble it to get access to the CD causing the trouble.

CD Player will not eject the CD magazine


Disconnect Battery
  • As with any tasks on a Mercedes or other vehicle, when you are dealing with disconnecting and connecting electrical systems, you should always disconnect the negative battery terminal. This will ensure your safety and prevent you from getting an electric shock.

Dash Panel
  • Pry the dash panel from the dashboard. There are two levers on the sides of the Mercedes factory-installed CD changer. Pulling down on the levers will release the radio from the bracket in the dash. You will have to remove the wiring and the antenna cable from the back of the system.

Installation
  • You can replace it with a newer version of a CD changer or insert the same one, once it has been repaired. Slide the player into the installation sleeve of the stereo dock. Pay attention to where the wires were removed and connect the unit's wiring to the leads in the wiring harness adapter. Connect the antenna cable lead into the antenna detector. Snap on the dash panel to complete the removal and installation.

Cd's stuck in 6-stacker


If the CD magazine does no release then it is needed to remove the player and open the mechanism to remove the struck up cd or mechanism.
Now is is possible that some CD can warp over a period of time or it can also get caught up in the transfer mechanism. Also if the loading mechanism had encountered a fault it can jam the system, so after removing the cover you can assist the cd to eject out with manual leverage of the motor and mechanical linkages. If not there is fault in the drive of the loading motor.

Toyota dashboard CD player won't eject


I had this say problem with my 2000 solara. Here is the fix, remove one of the car battery terminals for a couple of mins (3-4mins). The reattach the battery terminal back. This would make your cd player and car clock reset. once you start your car you should be able to eject the cds. You'll just need to reprogram all your preset radio station. Hope it helps
